Another "Swell" New SeaWeather Addition! By: Chris Iraggi, Meteorologist
You’ve provided your feedback, and we've delivered with this new addition to our SeaWeather website. You are now able to overlay both wave periods and wave directions on the same map, rather than having to select each product separately. This allows you to:
Determine the height at which seas are building
Find the direction at which seas are coming from
Visualize the period of the seas in seconds
To utilize this new feature, simply log into your SeaWeather.net account and open up the Forecast Parameters sidebar along the right side of the page. The "Wave Direction and Period" feature is located about halfway down the list.
You’ll notice once clicked you’ll be able to see a wide variety of colors which refer to sea heights. Now, once this feature is enabled, you’ll also be able to see black arrows which refer to the wave directions, and black solid numerical values which refer to the period, in seconds. As normal, the user may toggle this feature on and off to view other products as well.
We hope you enjoy this new feature, and welcome any feedback one may have on this product or suggestions for new ones.
The figure above displays the new feature Wave Direction and Period on SeaWeather. Note wave heights in color, wave directions noted by black arrows, and wave periods by black numerical values.
